For today.....

FOR TODAY

Outside my window...it is still sooooo warm.  Leaves are starting to change colour on the trees, but it is very much still Summer, with days as warm as 26c.

I am thinking...about going downstairs to make a cup of tea.  Everyone else is asleep, but I haven't had my tea yet and I really do like a cup of tea before bed :)  I guess I'm a creature of habit after all :) 

I am thankful...for the most amazing Summer - filled with wonderful memories and experiences - and sunshine that followed us everywhere :) 

In the kitchen...not too much has been happening as we have been barbecuing so much :)  I have been making plans for meals through the Fall though :)  

I am wearing... My nighty and underwear.  

I am creating...a future for my family.  I am creating several new pieces of art.  I am creating a Fall timetable filled with classes, get togethers and activities with the children.

I am going...to be very happy to sleep in the tent this weekend.  I sleep so much better in there!  

I am wondering...if my horoscope for this week was right.  Why I am always attracted to guys who seem or ARE gay. How I got so lucky with my amazing kids :)  If I really SHOULD grow my hair long OR if I should give up and tell Amber to chop it all off again!

I am reading...a couple of books on writing for Young Adults.

I am hoping...Nadine has some good news for me this week - exciting news :)  

I am looking forward to...our weekend away camping.  Labour day weekend - camping, swimming, exploring, hiking.....and seeing my kids have a wonderful time with all that freedom :)

I am learning....to be a better Mother every day.  To know ME better every day.  My purpose - a little more every day :)

Around the house...it's Summer, the kids are on holiday.  We are rarely at home.  

I am pondering...everything the psychic told me last week.

A favorite quote for today... Someone mentioned this quote today:  'Dreamers are the Saviours of the World' - James Allen

One of my favorite things...my project 365 app on my phone.  and getting texts :)  

A few plans for the rest of the week: The zoo, meeting Tracy at the park, museum maybe....then heading off to Drumheller to go camping and meet up with friends...relax by the pool and generally chill out until Monday :)  I'm sure a few other things will be thrown in - like Farmers Market, taking Laurence to work, playgrounds, shopping for the weekend, bathing Rosie....


Monday at our place.....

We were supposed to be at the zoo today, but when Susannah woke up she felt worse than she had been yesterday, so we decided to delay our trip.  Susie and Sam stayed home, and I drove Laurence in to town to his friends house as they were all going to a pool party.  

Abby and I then had a lovely afternoon of just the two of us!!  Much needed after last week!!!  We had some banking to do, and then went to Second Cup.  We sat outside with our Pumpkin Spice Lattes and Abby picked the BIGGEST ever Turtle pie!!  

We sat and chatted and then headed over to Michaels as I needed a new paint pen.  Abby found some tattoo pens so used my coupon to get them.  

After that we headed to County Clothes Line - our local thrift store.  We found the store completely empty and a sign on the door saying they had moved!  So we drove to the new address and had a look around!  Thrift stores are one of Abigails favourite ways to spend time :)  

Then some groceries and to pick up a tub of odour free garlic capsules - Susannah wants to stop her cold, and I want to make sure I don't get it!!  :)  

After that we headed home.






Once home, I decided to get some work done.  As it was such a nice day I took all my supplies outside and worked on the deck.  I added some more to the canvases I started the other day, and I started a new one too.



Abby opened her tattoo pens, and started to tattoo everyone:



I got a heart, scroll and the initials of my children:


Sam got......this:  


Then it was time to pack up and get supper started.  I barbecued again as e want to make the most of the good weather while it is here - and because the children LOVE when I make the potatoes and asparagus:


After supper I worked on a project I wanted to finish:


Then the girls watch The Hunger Games again, Sam watched The Iron Giant on my bed, and after capturing the sunset, I went and soaked in the bath and chatted to a friend:



That was my Monday!!  Hope yours was a good one!!!
